Epcon Communities’ floor plans in-line with what many new home buyers are looking for.

Many homeowners in the 55+ demographic have traditionally looked to downsize once their current home no longer meets their needs.  That movement has been gaining increasing traction in recent years, spurred by the desire for an active lifestyle focused more on things they want to do instead of wasting time on things they have to do like endless home maintenance chores every weekend.

Epcon Communities’ floor plans keep such buyer preferences in mind. High, tray ceilings and connected rooms all overlooking a central outdoor, and private entertaining space create a welcoming home with plenty of room to focus on lifestyle by entertaining guests and neighbors.

Equally important, buyers get more than a home. Epcon’s single-story, ranch-style homes are part of close-knit communities where routine home maintenance chores such as lawnmowing, raking and shoveling are taken care of. Centrally located clubhouses in many communities further encourage socialization and serve as hubs for homeowners to mingle and socialize with neighbors.  Epcon communities often have access to walking trails and the clubhouses are typically fitted with gym equipment, which homeowners can take advantage of.

Epcon homes are popular with key demographic

Epcon’s low-maintenance homes appeal to a wide demographic segment including the  55+ bracket. This is especially good news for Epcon Franchise Builders. For one thing, according to a Metrostudy report, people aged 55+ will comprise the majority (52%) of new home buyers. What’s more, there’s simply more of them fueling a demand for the kind of homes they like.

Epcon homes have an added advantage: while they offer the low-maintenance, entertaining lifestyle that the 55+ population is looking for, they are also a wise investment for the long term. Many Epcon homes feature single-floor, ranch-style layouts that eliminate the need for climbing stairs.

Many Epcon Communities’ floor plans factor in wider doors and hallways that can accommodate wheelchairs, and the homes can be outfitted with easy-to-operate hardware that is less taxing on aging hands.
